Do you think Trickster was buffed or nerfed?
Weird question, and I'm obviously biased from not being able to play him any more, but Trickster feels so much easier to win against now.
I've had 9 games against him so far, some not-so-good players and some very good players, and he honestly feels less threatening now. It's pretty easy to break line of sight enough to get Laceration decaying on most tiles, especially with Trickster's slow speed, and all you have to do is be mindful of your position and not voluntarily go to a low wall tile or deadzone while in danger of Trickster getting line of sight on you. That, coupled with the fact he needs to reload incredibly often now, means he rarely downs me with knives, if ever. Old Trickster would likely get you eventually, new Trickster can be delayed and countered for eons.
But I will admit he is very fun to play against. Very engaging chases, where you have to think in a completely different way. Excited to go against him more!
